Interestingly, there is a legend about the presence of this islet. Once upon a time, a fairy and a poor fisherman fell in love with each other, and she wanted him to be eternal like her. Therefore, she tried to steal the three peaches from Heaven for her man, but her action was caught, unfortunately. Then, the three peaches were turned into three-rock islet. Of course, a legend is a legend, and visitors can choose to believe in it or not, but none can deny that this islet is spectacular and interesting.
